Were you able to cast this prior to purchasing the rod? If so, where did you find one or is this strictly an internet buy? I have enough rods as it is but this sounds like it might be interesting to at least try out at a shop and see how it casts and how much it actually weighs.

I took a chance and ordered without trying it, but it's easily returned if you don't like it. I also look at reviews before buying.

I bought this rod for fishing the Ark as an all around rod. For $200 i'm impressed with the workmanship, looks, and action. A really pleasant rod to cast. Anybody looking for a rod i'd consider this one. It even comes with a spare tip and a no fault lifetime warranty. Really good guys to deal with.

Thanks for praising these guys, I have one of their rods that I use at 11 Mile Canyon solid rod, the castability is great, have landed many fish of various sizes. The rod and the handle finish are gorgeous work.

I've seen the workmanship... Decent price point... I would be interested to cast it. I know I've felt some amazing rods that are cheaper, and others that are a lot of bling...

Well, I sold it without ever casting it. My buddy has one and I cast it but mine was uncast when I sold it. I got involved with other stuff.

My balance has gotten to bad to be fly fishing anymore. Next year i'll probably go back to a spin rod and fish lakes. I don't need good balance for that. Getting old sucks!
